DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - Since the launch of its new chorizo on July 1, Pizza Patrón has tripled its chorizo sales, running out of the product in every distribution center.
Customers won't see any down time, but Pizza Patrón had to work quickly with its manufacturer to receive more chorizo at its distribution centers.
"Being our own proprietary recipe, this is not an off-the-shelf item that we could just reorder quickly. Our manufacturer really came through for us and our customers to make sure we didn't see any downtime," said Andrew Gamm, brand director for Pizza Patrón.
The chorizo, which combines authentic Mexican and Latin American tastes and is made with quality and flavor worthy of Toluca, Mexico's standards, was released after two intensive years in development.
"We are glad that our chorizo has been such a success," said Gamm. "We have worked hard to perfect this Toluca-based flavor profile, which our foreign born Hispanic customer knows and loves. We've definitely hit the mark -- the public is really responding to it."
